Baracknophobia

What follows is Jon Stewart's advice to all of the Republicans frothing at the mouth because of the supposed political crimes of Barack Obama. This amusing and pointed monologue occurred in early April (I'm just now getting around to posting it) and was prompted by the rampant "Baracknophobia" among the Republicans,who were--and still are--bloviating about the "tyranny" of the Obama administration. As usual, Stewart was right on point. And I quote:
I think you might be confusing tyranny with losing. And I feel for you, because I've been there. A few times. In fact, one of them was a bit of a nail-biter. But see, when the guy that you disagree with gets elected, he's probably going to do things you disagree with. He could cut taxes on the wealthy, remove government's oversight capability, invade a country that you thought should not be invaded, but that's not tyranny. That's democracy. See, now you're in the minority. It's supposed to taste like a shit taco.
